"do you plan to raise taxes?" and "how did you get in here?" [ laughter ]ng last night's presidential forum on cnn, bernie sanders had to correct moderator chris cuomo who said that sanders was 75 when he's actually 74. both for himself and on behalf of cmm.

[ laughter ] so is he running for president or leader of the plastics?pplause ] yeah.ht. donald trump said that ted cruz
jerk. not to be confused with trump, who is a jerk who looks like a liar. [ laughter ]ld trump said on sunday that his recent attacks on hillary clinton have caused bernie sanders to rise in the polls. adding that he is "the best to bernie sanders." while the worst thing to happen to bernie sanders is still static. [ laughter ]alloons at the campaign event. it's a terrible idea. no balloons!" uber drivers gathered at company headquarters yesterday and drove around the building while honking in order to protest the proposed wage cuts. i believe event. [ laughter ] there they are. are they arriving now? they're here? [ laughter ]tador in spain is under investigation after a video surfaced of him bullfighting
as take your daughter to work day. [ laughter ] under investigation. how long is that going to take? [ light laughter ]? "i did." -- you're guilty. [ laughter ] jennifer lopez started her las vegas residency at planet eek and this weekend accidentally split her pants during a performance. and the weirdest part was when she split her pants, pped out. [ laughter ]finally, the "adult video news" awards were held in las vegas, which are often called the oscars of porn. except unlike the oscars, a give the winners, it's also a category. [ laughter and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have
from "kung-fu panda 3," the always delightful kate hudson is back on the show this evening. [ cheers and applause ]s a fantastic actor, you can currently see him on cbs's "the good wife" jeffrey dean morgan is in the house. [ cheers and applause ] and he is the co-creator of ions" which, just got picked up for it's second season. brian koppelman is back on the show with us this evening. so it's a great show. to that, a month-long grand jury investigation into alleged wrongdoing by planned parenthood has produced a surprising could have implications for the presidential campaign. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." [ applause ]you may recall, last july an anti-abortion group released a series of secretly recorded, heavily edited tapes of planned parenthood officials the sale of fetal tissue. republicans got more excited about these tapes than your i.t. guy was for "force
[ light laughter ]ickly became a huge issue in the republican primary. >> planned parenthood is an organization that's been caught repeatedly, and now on video trafficking in fetal tissue. parenthood also essentially confesses to multiple felonies. we shouldn't be sending $500 million of taxpayer money to funding an on going criminal enterprise.hillary clinton, barack obama to watch these tapes. >> seth: you dare them? [ laughter ] is this a presidential campaign ol sleepover? [ laughter ] "mr. president, we have some bad news. you have been dared." [ laughter ] es made this into a national political scandal. the tapes prompted a series of investigations, even as planned parenthood and most independent fact-checkers insisted the tapes were deceptive.grand jury finished its investigation which means the day is here when planned parenthood haters can finally say they were proven right. exas, a grand jury said it will not, repeat
charges the organization broke the law. >> seth: what?uz just called them a criminal enterprise. and ted cruz would never say something that wasn't true. just ask his mom. hat my mom is not lifting me up in prayer -- for hours at a time. [ laughter ]eth: hours? can we see a gif of that real quick? i don't know if it's hours. [ laughter ]icans have been claiming there was a crime committed here for months. but if planned parenthood wasn't indicted, who was? >> in a stunning twist the grand jury says it did find wrongdoingwho made the videos and indicted two people behind the recordings. >> seth: did you get that? not only did they clear planned y wrongdoing, they even went so far as to indict the two anti-abortion activists who made the videos. they indicted them for using
purposes of fraud.t, because he sent an e-mail to planned parenthood attempting to purchase fetal tissue, an e-mail that planned parenthood never responded to, one of the activists was also indicted on ar charge related to purchasing human organs. [ audience ohs ] [ laughter ] first of all, there's a misdemeanor charge for purchasing organs? [ laughter ] of all, even if he doesn't do any jail time, that's a crappy thing to have on your resume. [ laughter ] listen, you are our top choice for the job but we have to ask rested for purchasing human organs? [ laughter ] "yeah, but i'm also proficient in excel so." ] so republicans trumpeted these videos for months. chris christie called for shutting down the government over planned parenthood funding. ted cruz said he would intervene personally to force thnt to investigate. but the candidate who arguably stretched the truth the most when it came to the videos is carly fiorina. she was challenged repeatedly by claims, and for months she refused to back down.
>> the videos were edited. you know that.were depicted -- >> -- of course they were edited. >> it's amazing that we're still having this conversation. >> no, no, no. let's be we're saying. of course they were edited. what you're saying is -- >> oh, let's be very careful about what we're saying, chris. let's be very careful about what we're saying. >> you were saying that the -- >> seth: she's got a real fatal attraction" vibe there. [ laughter ] "let's be very careful about what we're saying!" so carly fiorina made these lieser campaign. and after they were repeatedly proven false, she doubled-down on them. but hey, she took that gamble and it paid off. if she hadn't, she might not be as ninth place. [ laughter ] look, the abortion debate is an emotional one. and it's always going to take everyone's best effort on both sides to have an adult ut it. which is why instead of defunding planned parenthood, i propose we defund planned bull[ bleep ]. [ laughter ] where you edit tapes and you make fake ids and set up a make-believe company and send a
ah man, who invited these guys? hey clay, it's cool if we order some delivery? it' s time for you guys to make the right call. orno pizza, tfresh-baked in my own oven. t okay. it' s not delivery, it' s digiorno. es of jim beam, thousands of barrels lay silent. but that doesn't mean they lay idle. in fact, inside each and every jim beam barrel, ng, building a fuller, smoother flavor, that only comes from being aged four long years. our history is made from the inside.

[ light laughter ] and if you're making that up, if you're just lying to impress people, you need to come clean right now.atch everything.

[ cheers and applause ]ht. so i'm going to give you the title of the show, and you're gonna tell me what happened on this week's episode. okay? >> fred: okay.
